National Animal Nutrition Program (NANP) Feed Composition Database: Beef

Feed and Ingredient Information is presented as Tables of chemical composition and nutritional value for an extensive list of feed nutrient constituents. The tables include Nutrient, Mean, Number of Samples (n), Standard Deviation (SD), Coefficient of Variation (CV), and Min / Max values for Energy and Mineral components.

These data have been sourced from 3 commercial laboratories in the U.S. and have been sorted, screened, and classified by the Feed Composition Sub-committee of the National Animal Nutrition Program. The database will be continually updated.

At present, data has been derived from National Research Council (2000). Nutrient requirements of beef cattle. 7th rev. ed. Natl. Acad. Press, Washington, DC
